Written Answers — Attorney General: War Crimes: Rwanda ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: The Attorney General was last briefed on this matter by the Crown Prosecution Service on 30 April 2024.

Indeterminate Sentences - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: My Lords, as of December 2023, there were nine women serving an IPP sentence and 33 prisoners serving a detention for public protection sentence, who are in custody having never been released on licence. The IPP action plan aims to promote sentence progression for all those serving the IPP sentence. Provisions in the Victims and Prisoners Bill will give more offenders the opportunity to have...

Indeterminate Sentences - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: My Lords, the IPP action plan, which the Government have promulgated, remains the best vehicle to deliver support to all IPP and DPP prisoners, so that they can progress towards a safe release—safe for them and for the community into which they will be released. The IPP action plan provides continued focus on supporting those serving IPP and DPP sentences in custody and in the community,...

Indeterminate Sentences - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: My Lords, it is not the case that the Government are acting out of that reason—the position on resentencing has been rejected twice by the Government at different times. Instead, we take the view that as there is a public protection aspect to these sentences, it is apt that they continue to be treated in the current way. I reject the noble Lord’s proposition that people are being left to...

Indeterminate Sentences - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: My Lords, provision of just such multidisciplinary approaches is precisely what the Government are accomplishing in their approach to these people. I fully accept the noble Baroness’s considered point that persons who have not experienced freedom will suffer extreme and acute mental health difficulties from time to time. With that in mind, I can advise the House that the Government remain...

Indeterminate Sentences - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: My Lords, the right reverend Prelate’s example will strike a chord with noble Lords across the House and engage their sympathy. The work the Government are carrying out to establish psychology services is, as I said, multidisciplinary in nature and involves not only expert psychologists but dedicated probation officers, specialists in their field and those who have looked at the problems of...

Indeterminate Sentences - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: My Lords, the number of IPP prisoners are down to 1,312 as of 30 June 2023, from a maximum of 6,000. I hear the noble Lord’s views on the worthiness for release of those whom he has met, but it is not something which can be consigned to an individual; it is a matter for consideration by persons holding a wide range of specialisms and experience. I do not share the view that the Government...

Indeterminate Sentences - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: My Lords, I cannot provide the noble Lord with that information directly, but I will be able to do so in a very short space of time. I gratefully acknowledge the statement he gave on behalf of his party relating to the approach that has been proposed of resentencing such offenders. His views are at one with those of His Majesty’s Government.

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: My Lords, I have already spoken to Motion C. I beg to move.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: My Lords, if I referred at an earlier stage to the Bill as opposed to the treaty, I apologise to your Lordships’ House. The treaty will not be ratified until such time and I am grateful to the noble and learned Lord. As to the measures to which he refers, anent their adoption by the Rwandan Government, I think I touched on that in my speech. In any event, in treating with later amendments...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: My Lords, it will be by the implementation of these steps by the Government of Rwanda and the establishment of the very processes to which I have referred your Lordships. It is not right or fair to allow our asylum and legal systems to be misused in the way they are being. The public rightly expect us to remove those who have entered illegally and do not have a right to be here. This Bill,...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: My Lords, I am grateful for noble Lords’ contributions. I have no doubt that they are inspired by appropriate feelings of concern for people caught up in, as the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Bristol mentioned to us a moment ago, the disgraceful practice of modern slavery. None the less, these amendments are not necessary. In particular, in relation to the amendment from the noble...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion A (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: My Lords, I will also speak to Motions A1, C and C1. Motion A1 relates to Lords Amendment 1D, which seeks to ensure that the eventual Act has due regard for international law, the Children Act 1989, the Human Rights Act 1998 and the Modern Slavery Act 2015. As set out on many occasions during the passage of this Bill, the Government take their responsibilities and international obligations...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion A (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: As I said, the point is that the treaty will not be ratified until such time as that protection is in place. It is right to ensure that relocations are not frustrated as a result of general systemic challenges based on the general safety of Rwanda. The Bill’s provisions therefore limit challenges on the basis that Rwanda is not generally a safe country, or that there is the prospect of the...

Litigation Funding Agreements (Enforceability) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (15 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: My Lords, I am grateful to all those noble Lords who participated in this debate. I am grateful in particular to the noble Lords, Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede and Lord Marks of Henley-on-Thames, from their Benches, for the broad support they are giving. But if a financial metaphor is not inappropriate in the circumstances, I do not take either of them to have issued the Government with a blank...

Litigation Funding Agreements (Enforceability) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (15 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: As always, the noble Baroness has fulfilled a valuable public service. On the question from the noble Lord, Lord Meston, on the scope of the Bill, the view of the Public Bill Office confirms that this is a one-purpose Bill. Its scope is closely connected to the enforceability of litigation funding agreements and the Public Bill Office does not think that amendments relating to the wider...

Litigation Funding Agreements (Enforceability) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (15 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: My Lords, the Litigation Funding Agreements (Enforceability) Bill will fulfil the Government’s commitment to address the impacts of the United Kingdom Supreme Court’s judgment in the case of the King on the application of PACCAR Incorporated and others v Competition Appeal Tribunal and others. The reference for the case is 2023 UKSC 28. It was handed down in July 2023. This case is...
